After the gauge swatch we made last week, we are now starting d’Histoire Naturelle Blanket designed by Christina from A Spoonful of Yarn for real. In the first part of the blanket we make the center mandala and square it up. In this post you find the links to the written patterns, the video tutorials, and all other things you might need under resources and video tutorials.

My d’Histoire Naturelle: Herbarium
I am using the Stone Washed Herbarium colorway to make my blanket. In the first part we make a mandala, and then turn the mandala into a square. There are already so many small details; the flowing lines of the mandala, the flower petals in the corners of the square. That’s what I really like about my blanket, the details in the design.
Next week we grow this beautiful square into a different shape, see you then!
